This controller makes it easy to afford and deploy high-performing RAID configurations to help protect your data and help keep systems available. Thanks to efficient, low-profile design, it smoothly integrates with densely packed, rack-mounted servers to help streamline your data center. And by using onboard SCSI technology, it drives down the cost of enterprise-class data protection. The cost-efficient zero channel design of the ServeRAID-5i Controller allows it to operate through the SCSI interface that's built into the motherboard of select xSeries systems. It delivers full hardware RAID functionality by taking control of the onboard Ultra320 SCSI chip in these servers. It's able to transform the built-in basic mirroring capability of the chip into dual RAID channels that support nine different levels of RAID protection. The combination of low-cost, efficient design and patented IBM technology make this controller an extraordinary value for small to medium businesses, as well as departmental and workgroup serving. With the latest Intel 80303 I/O processor, it's a power-packed, intelligent controller that you can rely on to maintain your data's integrity. The sizable battery-backed cache keeps power interruptions from endangering your data. This controller takes up little room in a server. Using a simple sizing option included with your purchase, it can be converted to accommodate a 2U chassis.
